Almost noone understands kernel programming, that's why.  Also, it's
not obvious to me that making the kernel bigger is a good thing (not
because of size, but because it's one more way to fail in kernel

The more interesting question to me is why hardware vendors think that
supplying crappy closed-source tools makes their products more
attractive, and who they think they're fooling by hiding the hardware
interface that way (I'm looking at you, EPSON and Canon!)
